Kreator in propagandist od Grete Thunberg, liberalni establišment, je glavni akter vojne v Siriji, tudi kot pomemben podpornik in financer skrajnega islamizma in terorizma

Vodilni think tanki in ostale nevladne organizacije (iz ”liberalne CIA” in tudi iz ”konservativne CIA”), kot tudi njihovi glavni financerji, pa naj si gre za vojno industrijo, ali pa za banke in ostale korporacije, ki so pod kontrolo liberalnega establišmenta, so bili pomembni oz. glavni propagandisti vojne proti diktatorju Assadu v Siriji. Ta vojna, se je prvotno s strani istih akterjev začela v Libiji, ter se z izvozom skrajnih islamskih militantov in orožja preselila v Sirijo, ki velja za pomembno zaveznico Irana – sicer tudi sam financer raznih terorističnih skupin. Hkrati Obamova administracija v tej geopolitični igri na Bližnjem vzhodu, proda za 100 milijard $ orožja Savdski Arabiji, ki poleg tega, da je pred tem podpirala skrajne islamiste in teroriste v Siriji, aktivno vojaško deluje tudi v Jemnu, da bi zaščitila svoje interese proti šiitskemu Iranu.

Vojna v Iraku

Če se najprej ustavimo v Iraku, ki je bil izhodišče za Sirijo. Invazija in okupacija Iraka je predstavljala najpomembnejši dogodek v ameriški zunanji politiki po vojni v Vietnamu in po oboroževanju Talibanov v Afganistanu. Osrednjo vlogo pri vojni v Iraku je odigral Council on Foreign Relations, kot organizacija in skupnost, kot tudi njegovo vodstvo, člani in osebje, v vseh fazah vojne in okupaciji Iraka, od leta 2003 do leta 2011.

»The CFR was involved in the development of an overall climate of opinion on the Middle East prior to 2003, in lobbying for the actual decision to go to war, in the development and implementation of imperialist war aims, including the brutal suppression of the Iraqi resistance movement, and in the ultimate decision to partly reverse course and withdraw American troops1Laurence H. Shoup, Wall Street’s Think Tank, 2015, str. 218

V Iraku je bil bolj tradicionalni pristop geopolitičnega ravnotežja, ki je bil dolgo časa priljubljen s strani ameriške super elite, zamenjan za neomejen, vse-svetovni hegemonistični cilj ameriškega imperija preko nadzora obsežnih naftnih virov v Perzijskem zalivu. Območje Iraka in obkrožujočih področij, kot je območje okoli Kaspijskega morja, vsebuje dve tretjini svetovne nafte in je zato postal center svetovne geopolitične in ekonomske moči in tekmovanja v poznem dvajsetem in zgodnjem enaindvajsetem stoletju. Po uspešni invaziji na Irak in s postavitvijo vojaških baz, je vzporedno potekala tudi vzpostavitev neoliberalnih politik in ekonomskih programov z namenom preoblikovanja iraške politične ekonomije. Po invaziji so bili preko vojaške sile vzpostavljeni izkoriščevalski neoliberalni ekonomski programi, skupaj s psevdo-demokratičnim političnim sistemom po ameriškem vzoru. CFR-ovi oblikovalci politik v in izven vlade, so predvidevali, da bodo domnevno superiorni rezultati takšnih politik uspešno integrirali Irak, njegove vire in ljudi v globalni mednarodni kapitalistični red, ki je v glavnem voden s strani ZDA. V zameno pa so CFR-ovi odločevalci verjeli, da bo to otrdilo obstoječi kapitalistični sistem doma zaradi doseženega pritoka dobička/kapitala nazaj v ZDA. Imperialistične politike, ki jih je predstavljal ”War on terror” so bile tako nazadnje namenjene ustvarjanju dodatnega globalnega prostora za razvoj ekspanzionističnega kapitalističnega sistema, katerega cilj je bilo spodbujanje hitrega kopičenja kapitala, posebno v imenu ameriškega in transnacionalnega kapitalističnega sistema, katerega glavna politično oblikovalna in konsenzusno-tvorna organizacije je CFR.2Laurence H. Shoup, Wall Street’s Think Tank, 2015, str. 218

Pritisk na strateško pomembnost nafte na območju Perzijskega zaliva in dejstvo, da kdorkoli nadzira ta vir ima ogromen potencial in dejansko moč nad ključnimi industrijskimi ekonomijami sveta, se je odražal pri pričevanju takratnega državnega sekretarja Dicka Cheneyja v 90ih pred Senate Armed Services Committee. Cheney, ki je dolgoletni član in bil direktor od CFR, ko se je srečala študijska skupina glede “Great Power Interests in the Persian Gulf”, katera je sprejela enake perspektive, ter dejala senatorjem, da kdorkoli nadzira tok te nafte, ima popolni nadzor nad ameriško ekonomijo, kot tudi od večine svetovnih narodov.3Laurence H. Shoup, Wall Street’s Think Tank, 2015, str. 221

V istem obdobju, od leta 1991 – 1992, takoj po razpadu Sovjetske zveze, je bil oblikovan dokument “Defense Planning Guidance”, ki nastane v glavnem s strani štirih Cheneyevih podrejenih na Pentagonu, vsi štirje tudi člani od CFR. To so bili Paul Wolfowitz, I. Lewis Libby, Zalmay Khalilzad in Andrew W. Marshall. Osnutek dokumenta, ki sicer ni bil namenjen za javno objavo, je objavil super elitni New York Times, ki jasno, da ščiti interese te super elite. Tukaj se pojavi vrsto vprašanj, koliko je šlo v resnici za uhajanje informacij, saj je New York Times trdno v rokah liberalnega establišmenta in pomemben del nacionalno varnostne strukture. Podobnih primerov ”uhajanja” informacij, pri katerih so sodelovali člani super elite in njihovi mediji je bilo v preteklosti kar nekaj. Kakor koli, članek v New York Times je povzročil javno polemiko o ameriški zunanji in obrambni politiki. Dokument je bil na široko kritiziran kot imperialistični, ker je dokument začrtal politiko unilateralizma in preventivne vojaške akcije za zatiranje morebitnih groženj s strani ostalih narodov in za preprečitev, da bi diktatorski režimi zrasli do statusa supersile.

Za časa Clintonove administracije in v začetnem obdobju administracije Georga W. Busha je bila zelo pro-vojna skupina, ki je konstantno delala na tem, da ZDA potisne v invazijo na Irak, z namenom da bi ZDA dominirale območje Perzijskega zaliva. Osrednja skupina je bil radikalni neokonservativni Project for the New American Century (PNAC), ki je nastal leta 1997, v glavnem sestavljen iz ljudi iz Council on Foreign Relations. Druga pro-vojna skupina pa je bil sam Council on Foreign Relations. PNAC dobi svoj pravi pomen v Bushevi administraciji, vendar deluje samo do leta 2006, ko ga nadomesti Foreign Policy Initiative. PNAC je pa po drugi strani tesno povezan tudi z American Enterprise Institute (AEI), kjer je tudi nastal. AEI, ki sicer spada v omrežje ”konservativne CIA”, naj bi bil ”proti-utež” od CFR. AEI je v glavnem tesno povezan z Rockefellerjevimi interesi in neoliberalizmom. Med drugim je bil predsedujoči upravitelj od AEI v 80ih Willard Butler, tesen Rockefellerjev prijatelj, ter predsedujoči in generalni direktor od Rockefellerjeve Chase Manhattan Bank. Upravitelji pa tudi številni generalni direktorji iz vodilnih korporacij liberalnega establišmenta. Financerji od AEI pa v glavnem prihajajo iz omrežja ”konservativne CIA”.

3. junija leta 1997 je petindvajset posameznikov podpisalo ustanovno listino “Statement of Principles” za ustanovitev PNAC, od tega jih je bilo okoli 72% članov od Council on Foreign Relations. Med podpisanimi tudi Jeb Bush, sicer nikoli član od CFR, vendar družina Bush predstavlja izredno pomemben del liberalnega establišmenta in ozadje od CIA.
Prvo pismo, ki ga je leta 1998 PNAC4https://web.archive.org/web/20050426194606/http://www.newamericancentury.org/iraqclintonletter.htm v zvezi z odstranitvijo Saddama Husseina poslal tedanjemu predsedniku Billu Clintonu, članu od Council on Foreign Relations, so podpisali v glavnem člani od Council on Foreign Relations. To so bili (v odebeljenem tisku člani od CFR) – Elliott Abrams; Richard L. Armitage (1998; član od CFR Study Group); William J. Bennett; Jeffrey Bergner; John Bolton (CFR, 2000 – ); Paula Dobriansky; Francis Fukuyama; Robert Kagan; Zalmay Khalilzad; William Kristol; Richard Perle; Peter W. Rodman; Donald Rumsfeld; William Schneider, Jr.; Vin Weber; Paul Wolfowitz; R. James Woolsey (CIA); Robert B. Zoellick. Torej, od osemnajstih podpisanih, jih samo pet ni članov od CFR, vendar tudi Bolton postne član od CFR leta 2000. Armitage pa je leta 1998 so-predsedujoči, skupaj z nekdanjim upraviteljem od Rockefeller Foundation in članom od Trilateral Commission Harolodom Brownom, poročilu CFR-ove študijske skupine The Tests of War and the Strains of Peace: The U.S.-Japan Security Relationship. Jasno, vsi ostali podpisniki tesno povezani še s številnimi nevladnimi organizacijami znotraj liberalnega establišmenta, James Woolsey pa je tudi nekdanji direktor od CIA.
20. septembra leta 2001 je PNAC napisal pismo tedanjemu predsedniku Bushu za podporo ”War on Terror”, ki je plod od CFR in njegovega neokonservativnega elementa PNAC. Mediji in razni vodilni strokovnjaki, kot sredstva dezinformiranja javnosti, PNAC izpostavljajo kot neokonservativni in skrajno-desni element, ne pa njegovih tesnih in zelo očitnih povezav s Council on Foreign Relations, kot tudi z ostalimi vodilnimi nevladnimi organizacijami liberalnega establišmenta, kot tudi s CIA. V pismu podpisani med drugim zahtevajo odstranitev Saddama Husseina, kot ”vodilnega svetovnega terorista”, kot tudi močno povečanje vojaških izdatkov. Podpisniki pisma (odebeljeni člani od CFR) so bili William Kristol; Richard V. Allen; Gary Bauer; Jeffrey Bell; William J. Bennett; Rudy Boschwitz; Jeffrey Bergner; Eliot Cohen; Seth Cropsey; Midge Decter; Thomas Donnelly; Nicholas Eberstadt; Hillel Fradkin; Aaron Friedberg; Francis Fukuyama; Frank Gaffney; Jeffrey Gedmin; Reuel Marc Gerecht; Charles Hill; Bruce P. Jackson; Eli S. Jacobs; Michael Joyce; Donald Kagan; Robert Kagan; Jeane Kirkpatrick; Charles Krauthammer; John Lehman; Clifford May; Martin Peretz; Richard Perle; Norman Podhoretz; Stephen P. Rosen; Randy Scheunemann; Gary Schmitt; William Schneider, Jr. (CFR; 2003 – ); Richard H. Shultz; Henry Sokolski (CFR; 2007 – ); Stephen J. Solarz; Vin Weber; Leon Wieseltier; Marshall Wittmann. Od 41 podpisanih jih je 21 članov od CFR. Poleg tega so vodilni člani Busheve administracije člani od CFR, pred tem povezani s PNAC, kot tudi so člani od Trilateral Commission in skupine Bilderberg.

Pomembni elementi od Council on Foreign Relations so bili tudi vpleteni v samo pro-vojno kampanjo proti Iraku. Ta se je najprej v obdobju od 1997 – 1999 začela na komaj zaznaven način, ter kasneje, v obdoju od 2001 – 2002 na bolj odkrito pozivanje k vojni. Današnji predsednik od CFR in Rhodes Scholar Richard Haass, je bil v obdobju od 1994 – 1997 Council Fellow in tudi pod-predsednik in direktor od Foreign Policy Studies pri Brookings Institution, je v številnih knjigah in člankih pisal o tem, kakšna naj bo ameriška zunanja politika. Haass pa je bil v odboju od 2001 – 2003 vodja strateškega načrtovanja na State Departmentu, ki ga vodi član od CFR Colin Powell, njegov namestnik pa je Richard Armitage iz CNAP. Julija 2003 Haass tudi postane predsednik od CFR. Haass v svoji knjigi The Reluctant Sheriff: The United States after the Cold War, ki jo je leta 1997 izdal CFR pravi, da mora biti ameriška nacionalna varnost še naprej orientirana proti Perzijskemu zalivu, Azijsko-Pacifiški regiji in Evropi. Ameriška politika, oz. politika liberalnega establišmenta mora po njegovem mnenju delovati tako, da ohranja sprejemljiva ravnotežja skozi nasprotovanje ali izravnavati kakršno koli neravnovesje, ki se pojavi ali v obliki lokalne države ali nastajajoče velike moči. Kar se pa tiče samega Perzijskega zaliva, pa je Haass poudarjal, da je ključnega pomena ohraniti dostop do nafte. Leta 1999 Haass za CFR-ovo revijo Foreign Affairs piše, da morajo ZDA nositi imperialistično vlogo v svetu, in da je ključno vprašanje, kako izrabiti njen velikanski presežek moči v svetu. Pri tem mora ameriška zunanja politika načrtovati imperialistično razsežnost, v tej vlogi pa naj bi ZDA predstavljale Veliko Britanijo 19. stoletja.

Pritisk na vojno proti Iraku s strani vodilnih članov CFR-a, je na začetku leta 2002 postal bolj odkrit. V tem času je Foreign Affairs objavil članek Kennetha M. PollackaNext Stop Baghdad?”. V času nastanka članka je bil Pollack član, Senior Fellow in direktor nacionalno varnostnih študij pri CFR. Pred tem je Pollack za časa Clintonove administracije služil kot direktor za zadeve v Perzijskem zalivu pri National Security Council, ter bil CIA vojaški analitik specializiran za področje Perzijskega zaliva. Njegov članek odseva naraščajoče splošno mnenje za vojno pri CFR, kot tudi pri liberalnem establišmentu. Kasneje izide celotna CFRova knjiga The Threatening Storm: The Case for Invading Iraq, ki jo izda elitna Random House. V zahvali se Pollack najgloblje zahvali Leslieju Gelbu, pomembnemu članu super elite in predsedniku od CFR, kot tudi drugim voditeljem pri CFR, ki so omogočili, da je knjiga nastala. Pollackovo delo pa je pohvalil tudi tesen Rockefellerjev prijatelj in top predstavnik super elite Peter G. Peterson, predsedujoči od CFR.
Pollackov zaključek tako v članu kot v knjigi je bil, da je situacija podobna kot tista leta 1938 v Evropi in da nimajo ZDA nobene druge izbire, kot da napadejo Irak in eliminirajo Saddamov režim. V obeh pisanjih se je Pollack osredotočil na gradnjo taktičnega primera za invazijo, kot tudi da je dejstvo, da orožje za množično uničevanje predstavlja veliko nevarnost. Kot tudi, da bo imela invazija in poraz Saddamovega režima prednosti, ter da bo to pomenilo velikansko korist ameriške zunanje politike. Ta velikanska korist, ki si jo je predstavljal Pollack pomeni, da Saddam ne bi več nadziral globalne dobave nafte, ter da bi lahko ZDA svobodno sledile drugim ciljem na svoji zunanje politični agendi, vključno z možnostjo, da zgradijo ”novi Irak”. Ameriški stroški za obnovo Iraka naj bi bili po Pollackovem mnenju minimalni, niti ne desetine milijard dolarjev, ker naj bi Irak obnovo plačal sam s svojimi ogromnimi zalogami nafte. V obdobju od 2003 – 2010 naj bi bili stroški vojne v Iraku vsaj $1,100 milijard.
Pollack pa tudi izredno lepo povezuje American Enterprise Institute z liberalnim establišmetnom, saj je trenutno Resident Scholar od AEI, kjer se ukvarja z Bližnje vzhodno politično-vojaškimi zadevami, osredotočen pa je v glavnem na Irak, Iran, Savdsko Arabijo in države v Perzijskem zalivu. Pred tem je bil Pollack Senior Fellow pri Saban Center for Middle East Policy pri Brookings Institution, ki prireja Saban Forum, katerega moderator je bil tudi Pollack. Udeleženci od Saban Forum skozi različna obdobja so bili Condoleezza Rice, Henry Kissinger, Haim Saban, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Elliott Abrams, Sandy Berger, Zbigniew Brzezinski, James Wolfensohn, Nicholas Burns, Lester Crown, Tony Blair, Jane Harman, Rita Hauser, Richard Holbrooke, Ariel Sharon, palestinski predsednik Mahmoud Abbas, Ehud Barak, palestinski premier Salam Fayyad, Benjamin Netanyahu, Strobe Talbott, George Tenet, Mortimer Zuckerman, Michael Herzog, David Ignatius, Thomas Pickering, Joseph Nye, Leon Panetta, Thomas Friedman – New York Times, Joseph Lieberman, Lindsey Graham, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Stephen Breyer, Zalmay Khalilzad, Amos Yadlin, Natan Sharansky.
Pollack je bil tudi višji svetovalec od Albright Stonebridge Group, katere ustanoviteljica je top predstavnica liberalnega establišmenta Madeleine Albright. Bil pa tudi Research Fellow pri neokonservativnem Washington Institute for Near East Policy, ter strokovnjak in član uredniške uprave od Octavian Report, katerega prav tako sestavljajo top predstavniki globalistične, neokonservativne, neoliberalne super elite, kot tudi ”liberalne CIA”, umetniki, itd. To so Tony Blair, Kevin Rudd, Stephen Harper, George Shultz, Ehud Barak, F. W. De Klerk, Dick Cheney, Vaira Vike-Freiberga, John D. Negroponte, David Miliband, Natan Sharansky, admiral James Stavridis, William Perry, Jeh Johnson, General Michael Hayden, Jose Maria Aznar, Michael Steinhardt, Garry Kasparov, igralec Forest Whitaker, Abe Foxman, Bernard Henri-Levy, Lawrence Summers, Richard Haass, Michele Flournoy, Nouriel Roubini, Ian Bremmer, Michael Abramowitz, Paula Dobriansky, Stuart Eizenstadt, Cass Sunstein, Susan Schwab, Francis Townsend, John Bolton, Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg, Anne Applebaum, Elliott Abrams, Max Boot, William Kristol, Richard Kemp, Graham Allison.

Liberalni establišment in vojna v Siriji

Vojna proti Siriji se je med drugim začela preko medijev, prvotno s strani CFR neokonservativcev, ko so Sirijo postavili na Os zla. Eden takšnih zgodnejših zagovornikov te vojne je bil nekdanji Bushev svetovalec za nacionalno varnost Stephen Hadley, ki je preko super elitnih medijev, kot so CNN, Bloomberg TV, Fox News, MSNBC, Washington Post, ”pozival” Obamovo administracijo, da če hoče zaustaviti Iran, mora ojačati rdečo linijo proti Assadu. Hadley pa tudi avtor članka na uredniški strani od Washington Post z naslovom “To stop Iran, Obama must enforce red lines with Assad.” Washington Post je tesno povezan s CIA/liberalnim establišmentom, tako preko družine Graham, kot tudi sedaj, ko je v lasti Jeffa Bezosa.
Hadleyu so se tej anti-sirski pro-vojni grožnji pridružili najvišji predstavniki liberalnega establišmenta, kot so Madeleine Albirght, William S. Cohen, General Wesley Clark, Nicholas Burns, Frances Townsend, General Anthony Zinni, General James Cartwright, Michele Flournoy in General Michael Hayden.

»111 appearances, 13 attempts at disclosure. These commentators made 111 appearances – as op-ed authors, quoted experts, or news show guests – in major media outlets such as CNN, MSNBC, Fox News, Bloomberg, and the Washington Post. Despite the commentators’ apparent financial and professional stakes in military action, major media outlets typically failed to disclose these relationships, noting them, often incompletely, in only 13 of the 111 appearances (see table below for media outlet breakdown)5https://public-accountability.org/wp-content/uploads/PAI-Syria-media-report.pdf [financiran s strani ”liberalne CIA”]; str. 2-3

»Hadley earns $128,500 in annual cash compensation from the company and chairs its public affairs committee. He also owns 11,477 shares of Raytheon stock, which traded at all-time highs during the Syria debate ($77.65 on August 23, making Hadley’s share’s worth $891,189). Despite this financial stake, Hadley was presented to his audience as an experienced, independent national security expert. …
Stephen Hadley has voiced strong support for a strike on Syria in appearances on Bloomberg TV, Fox News, and CNN, as well as in a Washington Post op-ed. Though he has a financial stake in a Syria strike as a current Raytheon board member, and is also a principal at consulting firm RiceHadleyGates, he was identified all four times only as a former National Security Advisor to George W. Bush6https://public-accountability.org/wp-content/uploads/PAI-Syria-media-report.pdf; str. 1

    • S podjetjem Raytheon Technologies so preko njegovega vodstva povezani še ostali top člani liberalnega establišmenta, kot so to John Deutch – CIA, admiral Vernon Clark, Warren Rudman, General James Cartwright, William Swanson, itd

Vodilni think tanki liberalnega establišmenta, ki so pozivali k vojni proti Siriji

Hkrati s temi posamezniki, ki so preko medijev prodajali vojno proti Siriji, pa so bili v ozadju tudi elitni think tanki, povezani z vojno industrijo in so tehtali napade na Sirijo. To so bili The Brookings Institution, Center for Strategic and International Studies in The Institute for the Study of War.

»Seven think tanks. The report profiles seven prominent think tanks with significant industry ties that weighed in on intervention in Syria. These think tanks were cited 144 times in major US publications from August 7th, 2013 to September 6th, 2013. The Brookings Institution, Center for Strategic and International Studies, and The Institute for the Study of War were the most cited think tanks from our dataset.
Experts with The Brookings Institution were cited in 31 articles on Syria in our dataset, more than any other think tank. Brookings is an influential think tank that is presented in the media as an independent authority, yet it receives millions in funding from the defense industry, including $1 – 2.5 million from Booz Allen Hamilton [del od CFR] and $50,000 – $100,000 from Boeing [del od CFR], General Dynamics, Lockheed Martin [del od CFR], Northrop Grumman [del od CFR], and Palantir Technologies [del od CFR; Peter Thiel – CIA]. Brookings Executive Education’s Advisory Council Chair, Ronald Sanders, is a Vice President and Senior Fellow at Booz Allen Hamilton10Ibid.; str. 3-4

Poročilo od Public Accountability Initiative, ki je financirano s strani elitnih fundacij liberalnega establišmenta (kateremu pripada tudi Brookings Institution) oz. s strani ”liberalne CIA”, daje sicer dobre začetne informacije, vendar namenoma zelo skope. Jasno, razkrivajo samo toliko, koliko je primerno za občo javnost, da misli, da bo s temi informacijami informirana. Dejansko pa temu ni tako. Za pravi vplogled v ta veliki ustroj liberalnega establišmenta je potrebno veliko več informacij in povezav, tako med osebami, kot med korporacijami, tako vojaškimi, kot ostalimi, kot tudi med neskončnim številom nevladnih organizacij in elitnih univerz. Prav tako poročilo od Public Accountability Initiative ne razkrije, da so sami financirani s strani istih fundacij, ki financirajo ključne nevladne organizacije liberalnega establišmenta iz omenjenga poročila.

The Institute for the Study of War

V poročilu od Public Accountability Initiative je omenjen tudi The Institute for the Study of War (ISW)–

»Analysts representing The Institute for the Study of War were cited in 22 articles on Syria in our dataset. One such article by former ISW Senior Research Analyst Elizabeth O’Bagy was cited by Secretary John Kerry and Senator John McCain [International Republican Institute – CIA] during congressional hearings in their effort to justify intervention.1 ISW’s Corporate Council represents a who’s who of the defense industry and includes Raytheon, SAIC, Palantir, General Dynamics, CACI, Northrop Grumman, DynCorp, and L-3 Communications.«19https://public-accountability.org/wp-content/uploads/PAI-Syria-media-report.pdf; str. 4

Financerji od ISW leta 2011, ko se je začela vojna proti Siriji so bili poleg top predstavnikov liberalnega establišmenta še z njim tesno povezani top predstavniki ”konservativne CIA” –

»ISW’s Founding Supporters: The Paul E. Singer Family Foundation. Donors Trust. The Smith Richardson Foundation. The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation. Mr. Roger Hertog. National Security Leadership Award Sponsor: General Dynamics. Corporate Council: CACI … DynCorp Int. Palantir. Northrop Grumman«20http://www.understandingwar.org/sites/default/files/2011_AnnualReport_26MAR_email.pdf; str. 32

  • Ustanovni financerji od ISW – The Paul E. Singer Family Foundation, Donors Trust, The Smith Richardson Foundation, The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation, Roger Hertog (Hertog Foundation) – prihajajo iz omrežja ”konservativne CIA”.
  • Poleg korporativnih financerjev, pa so bili leta 2011 financerji še posamezniki –

»Commander’s and President’s Circle: … Michael B. Ajouz [delal za Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co.; Goldman, Sachs & Co.; EastWest Institute] … Michael Mukasey [Debevoise & Plimpton; National Security Institute] … Maj. Gen. Arnold Punaro [Defense Business Board, Science Applications International Corporation; National Defense Industrial Association; Center for a New American Security; Center for Strategic and International Studies; Bipartisan Policy Center; Atlantic Council] … Keith Brendley [RAND Corporation] … Benefactors and Patrons: … General Gordon Sullivan [Spirit of America; MITRE Army Advisory Board; MIT Lincoln Laboratory; Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute]«21Ibid.; str. 33

  • Financerji od ISW so prav tako tesno povezani z liberalnim establišmentom. S Council on Foreign Relations so kot korporativni predstavniki povezani Raytheon, Palantir in Northop Grumman. S tem, da je Palantir Technologies od Petra Thiela tudi pomemben del od CIA (In-Q-Tel), ter povezan z NSA, FBI, DHS, Special Operations Command in z West Point. Peter Thiel pa pomemben predstavnik od Bilderberg Group, kot tudi Trumpove administracije, ter obiskovalec od Sun Valley Meetings, ki so tesno povezani s Trilateral Commission in pomemben podpornik ideologije ”liberalne CIA” (Hollywood, mediji, visoko tehnološka podjetja).
    Financer od ISW pa je tudi Gatesov Microsoft, ki tudi spada pod okrilje Council on Foreign Relations, in je tudi financer od Center for Strategic and International Studies, od Brookings Institution, od Atlantic Council, njihovo vodstvo pa udeleženo na zasedanjih od Bilderberg Group, Trilateral Commission, kot tudi na Sun Valley Meetings.
  • So-ustanovitelj podjetja L-3 Technologies (L-3 Communications), je banka Lehman Brothers, ki predstavlja pomemben del liberalnega establišmenta. Pri podjetju L3-Technologies je (2020) predsedujoči in generalni direktor William M. Brown, ki je v svoji karieri delal za pomembno globalistično podjetje McKinsey & Company (del od CFR), katero je pomemben financer in načrtovalec ideologije ”liberalne CIA”. Hkrati pa je Brown član od The Business Council (Stephen D. Bechtel Sr., David Packard, Henry Kravis, Harold McGraw III, Rupert Murdoch, David Rubenstein, Stephen Schwarzman, Dick Cheney, David O’Reilly, James Robinson III, Kenneth Chenault, John Bryan Jr., Jeff Bezos, Jim McNerney, Rex Tillerson, John Hess); član od Business Roundtable (Kenneth Chenault, Evan Greenberg, Jim Hackett, Rex Tillerson, David O’Reilly, Jospeh Gorman, John Watson, Riley Bechtel, Douglas Daft); ter član odbora upraviteljev od Association of the United States Army, katerega predsedujoča je prej omenjena Phebe N. Novakovic.
    Predsednik in generalni direktor od L3-Technologies je Christopher E. “Chris” Kubasik, ki je bil pred tem izvršni direktor od Lockheed Martin (del od CFR), ter bil partner pri pravnem podjetju Ernst & Young (del od CFR; pomemben financer ”liberalne CIA”). Kubasik pa je tudi član uprave od National Defense Industrial Association, član uprave od Association of the United States Army, član od Aerospace Industries Association, član od Navy League of the United States.

ISW je vseskozi tesno povezan z nekdanjim direktorjem od CIA Davidom Petraesom (povezan z Danilom Türkom pri Concordia Leadership Council), kateremu so bili tudi svetovalci. Petraeus je povedal to o Kim Kagan

»“Kim Kagan is a leader. She has gotten the big ideas right for this organization, she has communicated them to the organization and indeed to supporters, she has overseen their implementation and she has then captured best practices, worst practices, refined them and repeated the process. And so, Kim, tonight I really want to say thanks to you for all that you have done. You are a barracuda at some times… But just let me say thanks to you formally for your tremendous leadership.” … General David Petraeus, August 4, 2011«22http://www.understandingwar.org/sites/default/files/2011_AnnualReport_26MAR_email.pdf

Direktorska uprava od ISW leta 2011 – 2020

  • Predsedujoči je General Jack Keane – omenjen in analiziran na začetku tega poročila.

    • članica svetovalne uprave od Spirit of America (John McCain, Peter Ackerman, George Shultz, General Jack Keane, General Stanley McChrystal, Nancy Soderberg, General James L. Jones, General Michael Flynn, General Jim Mattis, General H. R. McMaster).
    • Leta 2016 je bila Kaganova govornica pri pro-globalističnem Concordia Summit (David Petraeus; Danilo Türk). Ostali pomembni udeleženci leta 2016 so bili še – Madeleine Albright, General Keith Alexander (član direktorske uprave od Amazon), Giuliano Amato, Jose Maria Aznar, Joyce Banda, Afsaneh Beschloss, Cherie Blair, Ian Bremmer, Tom Brokaw, Warren Buffett, Felipe Calderon, , Laura Chinchilla, Paula Dobriansky, Timothy Cardinal Dolan, Kristalina Georgieva, Sherri Goodman, Lindsey Graham, Jane Harman, General James L. Jones, Frederick Kagan, Frederick Kempe, Vanessa Kerry, John D. Negroponte, General David Petraeus, T. Boone Pickens, Bill Richardson, Judith Rodin (Rockefeller Foundation), Donald Rumsfeld, Marietja Schaake, Anne-Marie Slaughter, George Soros, Tom Stritikus (Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation), Peter Sutherland, Laura Thompson (International Organization for Migration), Frans Timmermans, Frances Fragos Townsend, Alexis Tsipras, Danilo Türk, Cyrus Vance Jr., Paul Wolfowitz, Katherine Zimmerman (American Enterprise Institute).
      • Ostali pomembni udeleženci od Concordia Summit – Jose Manuel Barroso, Tony Blair, Laura Bush, Michael Chertoff, Bill De Blasio, Patrick Gaspard (Open Society Foundations), Joe Gebbia (Airbnb), Antonio Guterres, Lord Michael Hastings (KPMG), Per Haggenes (Ikea Foundation), Sean Hinton (Soros Economic Development Fund), Jeremy Kroll (K2 Intelligence), Christine Lagarde, Frank Mars, David Miliband, John Prendergast (”liberalna CIA”), Wilbur Ross Jr., Laura Tyson, Princesa Lamia Bint Majed Saud AlSaud, Jeh Johnson, Bill Kristol, Bernard-Henri Levy, Danska princesa Mary, Thomas McLarty III, Carolyn Miles (Save the Children), Ivanka Trump, Elliott Abrams, Jordanska Princesa Rania, Howard Buffett, Kellyanne Conway, Jacqueline Novogratz, Michelle Nunn, David Rubenstein. Bolj znani člani vodstvenega odbora od Concordia so – Princ Abdulaziz bin Talal Al Saud, Jose Maria Aznar, Jose Manuel Barroso, Cherie Blair, Ian Bremmer, Paula Dobriansky, Jacob Frenkel, Jane Harman, Jeh Johnson, John D. Negroponte, General David H. Petraeus, Anders Fogh Rasumssen, Kevin Rudd, Frances Townsend, ter tudi Danilo Türk.
    • V Afganistanu je Kaganova delovala pod Generalom Stanley McChrystalom, ki je znan po tem, da so preko njega potekala mučenja iraških zapornikov. Nadrejeni od McChrystala pa seveda ljubljenec liberalnega establišmenta, nekdanji direktor od CIA David Petraeus, za katerega je prav tako delala Kaganova, in sicer leta 2010, prav tako v Afganistanu.
    • Kaganova je Asadov režim obtožila, da se ne bojuje proti ISIS-u, za katerega nastanek je seveda odgovorna Obamova administracija, skupaj z zaveznicami, kot so Savdska Arabija, Katar in Turčija.

»Kagan also accused the Assad regime of failing to combat ISIS in Syria. “The Assad regime is not fighting ISIS. The Assad regime has every incentive to make sure that extremist groups perpetuate themselves in Syria so that outside powers can’t come in and strengthen the opposition and make it legitimate and democratic.”[5] This statement has been directly[6] contradicted[7] by many reports[8] and experts[9] on the Syrian conflict23https://militarist-monitor.org/profile/kimberly-kagan/

    • Poleg tega pa Kaganova prihaja iz vplivne neo-konservativne družine. Njen mož je Frederick Kagan, ki je rezidenčni strokovnjak od American Enterprise Institute (del ”konservativne CIA”), in je bil podpisnik od Rebuilding America’s Defenses, ki ga je pripravil Project for the New American Century. Frederick prav tako delal za Generala Petraeusa v Afganistanu.

»Kimberly Kagan has been a close adviser to U.S. generals serving in recent U.S. wars. These relationships have drawn scrutiny, particularly the relationship Kagan and her husband Fred had with General Petraeus. According to a December 2012 Washington Post [tesno povezani z liberalnim establišmentom okoli Rockefellerja, CIA, Trilateral Commission in Sun Valley Meetings] investigation, the Kagans visited Afghanistan repeatedly and extensively throughout Petraeus’ tenure there, during which time they received extraordinary accommodations for civilian visitors—including near round-the-clock access to military and intelligence officials, top-level security clearance, and priority travel to anywhere in the country, as well as desks and military email accounts. In return, the Kagans advised Petraeus and penned supportive op-eds about the general and the war effort when they periodically returned home.
Although the Kagans did not receive compensation from the U.S. military for their advisory work, the Post noted that they continued to receive paychecks from their respective think tanks while they were advising Petraeus. “For Kim Kagan, spending so many months away from research and advocacy work in Washington could have annoyed many donors to the Institute for the Study of War,” it observed. “But her major backers appear to have been pleased that she cultivated such close ties with Petraeus.”
Many of ISW’s major contributors and fundraisers—including DynCorps International, CACI International, and General Dynamics—are military contractors with active interests in the Afghan war. At a 2011 ISW event honoring Petraeus, Kagan thanked her corporate supporters for sponsoring her “ability to have a 15-month deployment [in Afghanistan] essentially in the service of those who needed some help24Ibid.

Bush potiskal ”svoje” verske iniciative. Vodja in so-ustanovitelj od ACFE je bil vplivni neokonservativec Michael Joyce, tesno povezan s ”konservativno CIA”, kot tudi povezan z liberalnim establišmentom. Joyce, ki je bil član vplivnega ultra-konservativnega Malteškega viteškega reda, je bil tako direktor od Bradley Foundation (1985-2001; del ”konservativne CIA”) in direktor od Olin Foundation (1979-1985), bil član od Mont Pelerin Society (del ”konservativne CIA”), bil prvi predsedujoči od Philanthropy Roundtable, so-ustanovitelj od Project for the Republican Future, bil član uprave od Clare Booth Luce Fund, bil podpisnik od Project for the New American Century.

Free Syrian Army pa so bili oboroženi z ameriškim orožjem, med drugim z raketami TOW, kot tudi s snajperskimi puškami Barrett .50 cal. Hkrati pa so se mnogi vojaki od FSA, če ne celo večina njih, pridužili tako ISIS-u, kot tudi Al Qaeda Syria.

Ostali pomembni propagandisti vojne proti Siriji

Poleg teh omenjenih think tankov in posameznikov, pa so bili akterji, ki jih omenja poročilo in so pozivali k vojaški akciji proti Siriji, povezani tudi z vsekakor vodilnim think tankom liberalnega establišmenta Council on Foreign Relations, z Atlantic Council, kot tudi z American Enterprise Institute (del ”konservativne CIA”), kot tudi s Sorosem povezanim Center for American Progress. Povezani pa še s CIA, Trilateral Commission, Aspen Strategy Group – Aspen Institute, National Endowment for Democracy, National Democratic Institute for International Affairs, U.S. Global Leadership Coalition, Internaitonal Crisis Group, Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, itd.

»Media commentary: Burns has made appearances on CNN and Fox News in addition to penning op-ed columns for the Boston Globe. He has expressed strong support for a strike on Syria and suggested that inaction may threaten national security.
From one of Burns’s Boston Globe op-ed pieces (9/7/2013):
From a foreign policy perspective, the decision isn’t even close — the United States must act by attacking President Bashar Assad’s air force, artillery, and command and control assets within Syria. The goal is to intimidate him, degrade his military capacity, and deter him from ever using these weapons again. There are risks, to be sure, in any use of force. But this will not be another Iraq — the United States will not put ground troops into Syria. And the risks are even greater if we do nothing.
From CNN’s State of the Union with Candy Crowley (9/1/2013):
[Gloria] BORGER: And Nick Burns, let me ask you, what are the implications of this kind of delay for our allies in the region, or in Syria, for that matter?
BURNS: Well, Gloria, there are some risks here. Risk one is that Assad will misread this, not understand what the president is trying to do as David [Gergen] has described in terms of domestic affairs and believes that we’re a paper tiger. And that will embolden him. The second risk is that Iran, Hezbollah and Russia, the coalition supporting Assad, will also feel that they have got license to continue what they’re doing. So the president needs to counteract those29https://public-accountability.org/wp-content/uploads/PAI-Syria-media-report.pdf; str. 13

»Media commentary: Cohen has made multiple appearances on CNN, MSNBC, CNBC, and Bloomberg TV to discuss Syria in recent weeks. He has expressed confidence in the US intelligence on Syria, but advised consulting with the UN and Congress and determining more clear objectives before taking action.37 From CNN Newsroom (9/11/2013):
COHEN: Nonetheless, the president is where he is right now and if he is forced to take action because the Russians are stalling and Assad is not complying, then he should use the Desert Fox operation that President Clinton initiated against Saddam Hussein with a four-day campaign that did real damage to Saddam’s capabilities. And I think that’s what the president has in mind30https://public-accountability.org/wp-content/uploads/PAI-Syria-media-report.pdf; str. 14

»Media commentary: Clark has made appearances on CNN and NPR [del ”liberalne CIA”] and penned an op-ed for Zocalo Public Square that was published in USA Today. He has expressed condemnation of Syria’s use of chemical weapons and support for Obama’s response on moral grounds. From Clark’s op-ed in USA Today (8/29/2013):
But President Obama has rightly drawn a line at the use of chemical weapons. Some weapons are simply too inhuman to be used. And, as many of us learned during 1990s, in the words of President Clinton, “Where we can make a difference, we must act.
From CNN’s Erin Burnett OutFront (9/4/2013):
CLARK: Because I think if the United States is going to lead, this is the time to lead, and what the president is doing is leading. Everyone signed this chemical warfare convention. It outlaws the use of chemical weapons. It’s actually been in law since 1925. And this is a chance for the United States and the world community to show that we
meant the piece of paper when we signed it. And that’s what this is about, U.S. leadership. It is not about the strike. This is about bringing the United States and the world together to make a statement. This is not going to be permitted in the 21st Century31https://public-accountability.org/wp-content/uploads/PAI-Syria-media-report.pdf; str. 15

»Media commentary: Flournoy appeared on MSNBC expressing support for a strike on Syria:
FLOURNOY: Look, I think there are very important stakes involved here: first, the issue of upholding the international norm against the use of chemical weapons; second, U.S. credibility and leadership in the world and third, knowing that the rest of the world is watching. What messages does Iran take from either action or inaction? So I do think that limited, focused strikes, focused on deterring further use of chemical weapons, degrading Assad`s ability to carry out such attacks, that those are something we need to support and we need to do. But I also think we need to better explain to the American people and to Congress the stakes involved and the risks of not acting, what that would mean33https://public-accountability.org/wp-content/uploads/PAI-Syria-media-report.pdf; str. 18

»As CNN’s national security analyst, Townsend has made multiple appearances on CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360 to discuss Syria.16 Townsend has stated that she sees action as “inevitable,” but has also questioned the effectiveness of a limited air strike on most appearances, instead promoting a “full comprehensive strategy” without limits set by Congress. She has expressed on multiple occasions her concern that a limited strike will threaten US national security. From CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360 (8/28/2013):
TOWNSEND: When we have used these standoff assaults before, like after the East Africa bombing, it has a short-term effect, but not a long-term strategic effect. And that’s what you really want to do. You don’t want to just deter the Syrians. You want to deter Hezbollah, al Qaeda, Iran from using these kind of weapons as well.
From CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360 (9/3/2013):
TOWNSEND: That’s right, so you worry about the release of what chemical weapons they have, the use of Hezbollah, you know, asymmetric attacks not only inside Syria but are in the region and around the world against Western targets.
She has also commented on the quality of the intelligence on Syria, calling it a “pretty
compelling narrative” and questioned the trustworthiness of Russia’s plan to deal with Syria’s
chemical weapons.«34https://public-accountability.org/wp-content/uploads/PAI-Syria-media-report.pdf; str. 10-11

General James Cartwright

Cartwright je služil kot pod-predsedujoči od Joint Chiefs of Staff, 2007 – 2011.

Cartwright je –

  • član od Council on Foreign Relations;
  • direktor od Atlantic Council;
  • je Harold Brown Chair in Defense Policy Studies pri Center for Strategic and International Studies;
  • član od Aspen Strategy Group – Aspen Institute;
  • član od Defense Policy Board;
  • član od Nuclear Threat Initiative;
  • član direktorske uprave od Allied Nuclear (Robert McFarlane, General Jack Keane, General Keith Alexander, Mike Rogers, Dennis Ross);
  • Senior Fellow od Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs – Harvard University;
  • udeleženec od Sanya Initiative;

  • svetovalec za obrambo pri ABC News (del Sun Valley Meetings).

»Media commentary: Cartwright appeared on ABC’s This Week Syria experts panel on September 1, 2013, the same day John Kerry made appearances on all of the Sunday shows. Cartwright echoed concerns that a limited strike would not be an effective deterrent, but agreed with host George Stephanopoulos that the United States needed to strike Syria to maintain credibility and send a message to Iran …
STEPHANOPOULOS: And General Cartwright, so much of this idea of hitting back at Assad, in part because of those horrific pictures, but also the word credibility comes back into play. All of the military, all the entire region, also looking at Iran and wondering the kind of message it sends to Iran if we do not, if we do not strike in the wake of an attack like this.
CARTWRIGHT: I think it’s critical here and that’s probably one of the audiences we have to pay close attention to35https://public-accountability.org/wp-content/uploads/PAI-Syria-media-report.pdf; str. 10

»Media commentary: Katulis has appeared on MSNBC’s Politics Nation with Al Sharpton and Bloomberg TV, published a piece on Syria in the New York Daily News, and has been quoted in the Christian Science Monitor, Bloomberg and the LA Times. On MSNBC, Katulis said that Obama and Kerry had done a “very good job” making the case for airstrikes, though raised doubts about the efficacy of a limited strike.69 He has also commented on the role of international “silent partners,” countries who may not support the strike militarily, but in other ways37https://public-accountability.org/wp-content/uploads/PAI-Syria-media-report.pdf; str. 20

Vse to vojno dogajanje okoli Sirije in Irana, pa je tesno povezano z Obamo in njegovo (progresivno globalistično) administracijo, saj Obama med drugim predstavlja pomembnega promotorja ”liberalne CIA”.
